HEALTHY OBESITY? The research by scientists at University College London is the longest of its kind, and its findings support previous research that has shown people who are overweight face a higher risk of heart attack, stroke and some kinds of cancer than thin people as the years go on.
For the purpose of the research, “healthy obesity” was defined as not having high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes or other metabolic risk factors. A total of 2,521 men and women between the ages of 39 and 62 were followed for the study that measured their body mass index, cholesterol, blood pressure, fasting plasma glucose and insulin resistance. A total of 181 participants were initially classified as obese, including 66 who were considered “healthy obese”.
By the time the two decades had passed, just over half of the healthy obese people had become unhealthy obese.
“Healthy obesity is a high-risk state with serious implications for disease risk”, said lead study author Joshua Bell.
